A recent coaching call with clients, who are very much in love but couldn’t seem to settle on how to achieve a growth oriented relationship, has inspired this episode. The woman in the couple is extremely committed to her personal growth through an extensive morning routine including meditation, journaling, and self-care every day. While not opposed digging into growth, her husband is a very ambitious entrepreneur who, after a hard day at work, desires to hang out with his wife in a lighter manner by focusing on the laughter, and fun moments the majority of the time.
This creates an ongoing tension between the two of them because they believed having a growth-oriented relationship, and feeling satisfied and content, were mutually incompatible.
In this episode, I discuss:
- How this couple can get into alignment with one another
- Is feeling content really the opposite of being deeply committed to personal growth?
- Why a desire does not imply dissatisfaction with the current state of affairs
- How to want more while being content with what you have
As a relationship and intimacy coach, I always want you to be able to see how what you have is beautiful, while also believing it’s worthwhile to create even more goodness and connection in your relationship. Today you’ll learn that you don’t have to choose one or the other!
